When you purchase a heating appliance, it is important that it is as safe as possible to use in your home.
Anti-tip shutoff – If the heater gets knocked over and it has an anti-trip shutoff built in, then it will turn itself off. This ensures that the heater does not pose any threat from fires if it is accidentally knocked over. This is most useful in homes where the residents are elderly, or for families with children or pets.
Timers – Some infrared heaters come with a timer function. Not only can this save you money by not being left on accidentally, but a cutoff timer can also ensure that the heater does not have a chance to overheat and start a fire.
